Georgiana Houghton – Spirit Drawings is currently on view this summer at The Courtauld Gallery. Working in the 1860s, Georgiana Houghton painted intricate watercolor works as a means to communicate with her deceased sister. On the back of her paintings she would provide a detailed description of the work including the process, duration, and if she had a spirit guide such as Turner or Titian. A unique exhibition not to be missed!
